Such lists usually doesn't work for me, cause I find there's always something or missing. But I found it to be a fun list to explore if one is curious, enjoy.

Great list but number 3 should be number 1, in my very humble opinion.

For me, Robert Johnson is the grand master of the blues, his voice is so passionate, his guitar playing is incredible, listen to the intro to Preachin Blues, sounds like two guitarists and he couldn't play a year before that recording.

Cool! I find these lists useful to discover new music or to give attention to albums that I didn't. smile.gif

Just ordered #13 from Amazon on CD, gotta have a hard copy, can't find one with the full track list on though sad.gif

Gab, trying to look for those arpeggios in there wink.gif


Some inspirational things between tracks too:

https://youtu.be/i1LzW-XijXE?t=2314 (A.K "They don't concentrate on no soul", S.R.V "Ar bin tryin' ") To hear Mr SRV say he's been trying in such a humble way cool.gif

The fact that the "Blues Brother's" soundtrack is on there destroys the credibility of whomever compiled it. The list in general is pretty good overall as a general collection of cool blues albums. I would disagree heartily with the numerical rankings.

*I personally don't think the SRV/Albert King is all that great. They're much better on their own.

Here's a few I would add. Any modern blues and blues influenced guitarist would consider these to be essential for a good blues guitar collection, especially if you're more into rock/blues ...

John Mayall - A Hard Road (w/Peter Green)
Paul Butterfield Band - East/West (w/Mike Bloomfield) *Or an anthology.
Freddie King - Texas Cannonball *Or an anthology.
Albert Collins - Frostbite or Ice Pickin
Otis Rush - Right Place, Wrong Time
Robert Cray - Strong Persuader
Magic Sam - West Side Soul
Johnny Winter - Second Winter
T-Bone Walker - T-Bones Blues *Or anthology.
Fabulous Thunderbirds - Girls Go Wild
Eric Clapton - 461 Ocean Blvd.
BB King - Completely Well
Jeff Beck - Truth (Don't miss this! Not strictly a 'blues' record but there's a lot of blues on it).
Jimmy Witherspoon & Robben Ford - Live at The Ash Grove, 1976

All of it is available on YT and Spotify. Check it out. Have I ever steered you wrong wink.gif

I didn't even notice the Blues Brothers album, my eyes skipped it, Freudian dismissal maybe smile.gif

Never been a Clapton fan really, I don't know why, I just prefer Johnson, BB, Albert, Elmore James and people from that era, with the exception of SRV who for me is the greatest post 50s blues player.

I'll dig into that list Ken, thanks.

You are gonna hate me now, Phil, but while I have heard various songs from Vaughan, I had never heard a full album till this thread. Heard Texas Flood and it's great! Same for Moore's Still Got The Blues. Listened to those two albums the other day.

I have since been sitting in the corner of shame.

Great news Ben. Get Couldn't Stand The Weather and listen to the title track, the rhythm playing is awesome, Tin Pan Alley, the inspiration for that file of mine you liked and Voodo Chile, in my very humble opinion, it beats the original. wink.gif

By the way, I'll never hate you Ben wub.gif wink.gif
